    Current Employee - Senior Product Marketing Manager in Redmond, WA (US)

    I have been working at Microsoft full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    - Working with some of the smartest people tackling real hard problems
    - Great benefits
    - Opportunity to move around and try a lot of different roles and get exposure to different businesses without leaving the company.

    Cons

    - Slow decisions, lot of overhead due to various internal processes and reviews which are unnecessary.
    - Career growth has begun to slow down across the board as company is not growing much
    - Bloated; lots of roles (especially in Marketing) are totally unnecessary; there is also a lot of overlap.

    Recommends
    Neutral Outlook
    No opinion of CEO
